When to Drink Clos de Bouard, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Clos de Bouard is much better with at least 2-4 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for 1 hour or so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Clos de Bouard offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 3-12 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Clos de Bouard with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Clos de Bouard is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Clos de Bouard is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Clos de Bouard is also good when matched with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
